I installed Manjaro on my gaming desktop (it hasn't had a working Linux install for a while) and man this went by really quickly! It was such a breeze to install and I've had no issues with the NVIDIA graphics driver or anything.

I'm really impressed with Manjaro. I have no complaints thus far

#InfoSec

People who joke about The Year Of Linux on desktop?

We are at the point where Linux is much more attractive alternative to Spydows. M$ is screwing up badly with the worst updating model in the history of OS computing.

Valve (Steam) are pushing Proton / Steam Play.

Devs support Linux more and AMD are improving their Linux drivers.

It is a mere matter of time when Vulkan (the DirectX hunter) is to become an industry standard?

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
